CASPER AM DX LOG

This log is a product of several DX periods, beginning in 1989 through 1999.
The second DX period was throughout the early 2000s, as subsequent updates were made.
Currently, the log has been active since December 2020. This log was reconstructed from the original in February of 2021.
Radios used for DXing can be seen below the log.
Anything without a date was likely received between 1989-1999.
